Medicare

First, the good news: Everyone 65 or older is eligible for Medicare. 

Now, the not-so-good news: It doesn’t cover all your healthcare costs.

Medicare’s great. But the gap between what it does and doesn’t cover comes out-of-pocket. Your pocket. And there’s no limit on how high the extra charges can run. Depending solely on “Original Medicare” is a financial disaster waiting to happen.

We can help. Supplemental health insurance (sometimes called Medigap) fills the “gaps” in the Original Medicare. Buying a Supplement plan doesn’t replace basic Medicare. Instead, it works in conjunction with it to cover some of the costs you’d otherwise owe, including co-payments, co-insurances, deductibles and more. 

piles of paperwork

If you only have basic Medicare (Parts A and B), you can be stuck with hundreds — even thousands — of dollars in unexpected fees.

But it’s easy and surprisingly affordable to insulate yourself from medical sticker shock. Buying a Medicare Supplemental or Medicare Advantage plan through Autumn can provide peace of mind from potentially catastrophic bills. 

The field of health insurance is complex. At this time, there are 10 different Medicare Supplement plans, each with different coverage. And pricing. Which is another reason to contact Autumn — although the plans are standardized, the rates carriers charge for them are not. We work with multiple providers to find the best rates and features that work to your advantage.

Our Medigap specialists are happy to answer your questions and help you compare benefits and prices.

The advice is free and there’s no obligation. We’ll help you decipher the “alphabet soup” of Medicare Supplemental insurance and shield you from some, most, or virtually all of those costly out-of-pockets.

Contact us. It’s as easy as A-B-C.
